I am currently employeed with a Career FD and a part time FD. I have a beautiful wife and a wonderful daughter and I love them both dearly. I am very committed to the Fire Service and bringing back the traditions of honor, pride, integrity, professionalism, and self sacrifice. I try to do this through teaching younger members and reminding older members who we are, why we do some of the things we do, and how to be a part of a team. My religion(Islam) is of utmost importance to me and I try to bridge cultural gaps and erase ignorance with education and dialogue. My faith provides me with the integrity, bravery, and sense of brotherhood needed to succeed in this profession. I respect all FF's who respect the Fire Service, but I have no tolerance for FF's who disprespect the honor, history, or pride of this profession.

Please forgive my lack of knowledge about your relegion. I was reading your post on FIT testing. Would you mind explaining how your religion requires that you have facial hair. I am only asking out of respect and interest, so I hope it received that way. I feel that brotherhood crosses all personal beliefs and creeds. So I would like to understand yours, so I can make a more informed opinion on the FIT testing issue.
